Hi all,

I've noticed when I run the htmlentities function on chinese text it causes it to come out all jumbled out.  Is there a way to avoid this?

I'm learning PHP and mySQL. Please forgive my ignorance :(

Like htmlspecialchars(), htmlentities takes an optional third argument charset which defines character set used in conversion. Support for this argument was added in PHP 4.1.0. Presently, the ISO-8859-1 character set is used as the default.

Try using one of the available third argument settings.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.
